John Kerry on Demise of Dubai Ports Deal

Below is a statement from Senator John Kerry:

"Today the plug was mercifully pulled on the ownership of U.S. port operations by Dubai Ports World. It's been a case study in the Administration's incompetence and inattention to the fundamental issue of port security. The question is, will anything change now? The Bush Administration needs to come to terms with the reality that four-and-a-half years after September 11th the government still can't get past go on port security.

"Dubai deal or no Dubai deal, it's clear that this is just the tip of the iceberg of the Administration's failure on port security. A new report from the Department of Homeland Security shows that Target does a better job monitoring their stores than our government does monitoring our ports. Their failure to put together a basic program after all the warnings must be a wake-up call to finally get it right on homeland security."
